Hello,

today i got caught stealing a trouser from primark.

 

The security man took me to the room in the back and took my ID and wrote down my details.

 

I gave him my address but a wrong apartment number.

The security man said that I will get a fine(didn’t mention from who I will get it) and I have to pay it otherwise the police will come and take me to the police station and I’ve to give an interview.

 

is that true ?

What will happen?

Should I tell the apartment to give me that letter if they get it?

I suggest you use the red top toolbar and its search CAG box.

primark

 

should do.

 

security should not be threatening you with a fine

are you sure they used that word?

 

only the police and courts can fine you, and as the police were not involve

all you'll get is scary letters from the likes of RLP which can be totally ignored.

 

just don't go in that store for awhile.

 

have a read up

you'll soon get the idea

 

if this is a reoccurring habit, it wouldn't hurt to have a chat with your GP.

Hi,

 

Thank u really much for the reply. Yes the security said that a company will send me a fine and if I don’t pay it they will get in contact with the police and send the police... I have given the wrong apartment number, so will they find my apartment somehow?

Nothing will happen. The guard is lying. There is no fine, and no police will come if you dont pay them. Move on with your life and dont steal again.


Any advice i give is my own and is based solely on personal experience. If in any doubt about a situation , please contact a certified legal representative or debt counsellor..

rlp cannot 'sent the police'

 

again this is primark

and shows the need for retraining of their security staff

be them franchised or in house

 

nothing like that can never happen.

p'haps they get a backhander from RLP if they say that

cause if you did pay them it would be free money that most certainly no retailer that employs them ever sees a penny get back to them.

Hi and welcome to CAG

 

It really annoys me when security use threats such as these to scare people. While it is obviously wrong to steal, this should not be compounded by incorrect information.

 

You will get a few letters from RLP but as you didn't give the correct apartment number, someone else will get them and maybe pass them on to you.

 

These letters will make claims that they 'may' do this or 'might' do that. None of which are true. Only Primark can take action but they don't bother as it is not cost effective to do so

 

If you do get the letters passed on to you, let us see a redacted version of the letter to confirm that it is one we have seen before but most importantly, IGNORE RLP!


If you are asked to deal with any matter via private message, PLEASE report it.

Everything I say is opinion only. If you are unsure on any comment made, you should see a qualified solicitor
